Hey Tex..... can you kindly explain what is meant by " affiliation " with a park ? I'm a little confused on that.
You accused me of breaking the " affiliation " rule in the thread ......reviews not posted.... I explained my friendship with someone in the park.....but you deleted my reply and locked the thread again.
I don't want to break any rules ...or waist time... so I am looking for an explanation.
Yes, I can do that.
An affiliation means you have some connection with the park or its owner(s). Usually that would mean you are a manager, a workcamper, a host, other employee, etc. It could also mean that you are a relative or close friend of the owner or employee--basically any relationship that could cause you to be biased in your review of the park.
To quote the statement that all reviewers must agree to: "I am not currently nor have I ever been the owner, a relative of the owner, or an employee of this or any other RV park or campground that could be considered a direct competitor of this RV Park or campground. Furthermore I do not currently have nor have I ever had any affiliation with this RV park or campground, or any other RV park or campground that could be considered a direct competitor of this RV Park or campground."
Now to apply this to your situation: When you said you had "a personal friend who is involved with the new design and upgrade of that KOA," I felt your relationship and your desire to help out your friend could affect your judgment about the park. I pointed out that your friendship with someone who had a vested interest in the park was "pushing the envelope" or coming close to breaking the rules, if not actually doing so, and if nothing else, it certainly contributed to your attitude about the review not being posted.
Also the thread was shut down because the contributors were being rude to each other.
I hope I have answered your question.
